Okay, I meant to do this awhile ago but Photobucket was being maintenanced so I didn't get to.
All of these have their pros and cons, mostly pros of course! I didn't list the Bjorn, even though it's a good... "intro" carrier, because it's generally uncomfortable for a baby on the heavier side (and why pay $100 for a carrier you can use for 6 months when you can pay $50 for a comfy carrier you can use for 3 years). Not to mention that with these carriers, daddy won't get kicked in his you-know-whats
LOL since it's more of a "seated" position like a chair/hammock versus a dangly-position (which, for boys, puts a lot of weight on HIS you-know-whats
Article on choosing which carrier is best for YOU, by weight of baby, position of baby, versatility, etc...

Anyway, ENJOY. I know, I seem obsessed, but I promise I USE THEM ALL for DIFFERENT OCCASIONS!!! You wouldn't wear flip flops to a job interview, would your? Or heels on the beach? LOL...
Here WAS my whole stash, of course it's always changing...
I'll try to categorize by type of carrier... otherwise this could get very confusing...
This picture is of the Dr. Sears sling. aka the NOJO... I would not recommend this sling. WAAAAY too much padding. I've heard it's okay for DADS to carry TODDLERS, but babies just get lost in it. $45
This is a solarveil Zolowear sling... no padding, much more comfy. Jake is in the "buddha" position, similar to when he was in the womb. $45
Same sling, only a tummy to tummy hold.
My only pouch, which doesn't fit anymore
Pouch (and Ergo, see SSCs)
This is our first mei tai, borrowed from a gracious woman
to let me try it. It's a Mei Tai Baby, new is $60ish, can get a good broken in used one for $45
Second mei tai, an Angelpack. I'm wearing it inside out, you can see the print in the folded back part... it's reversible to that print.
Finally bought my own mei tai baby, $45, figured out how to do this back carry alone.
Another MTB shot
MTB laid out
Kozy Carrier Mei Tai, very wonderful as well
No action shots as I've lent it out
Babyhawk (they have awesome prints!!) This one is lined with Minkee (mmmm soft) but it's not staying since it's hot here...
This is a Gypsy Mama Bali Baby Breeze (gauze) wrap, our first wrap. Also first back carry
It wasn't as soft and lovey as I wanted but I also bought it brand new and sold it before breaking it in.. It was nice and thin and cool, though. $50ish
Same wrap, front carry
Didymos chocolate NINO, our first woven wrap. $85 I think
Girasol wrap, very soft and flannely and lovey... $60ish
Jeansblau NINO all laid out (I still have this, just have no action shots!!
This is a MOBY D, a "beginner" or "newborn" wrap. I bought it on clearance so I could sell it, since DS is too heavy for it. It's more like jersey material.
SOFT STRUCTURED CARRIER
This was my first SSC, the Ergo. It did not fit well as I'm smaller framed--great for men.
And my second, a bEco
NOTE: These also work in front carry! Just don't have any of those pics uploaded!!!
